Utilizing A.I. and machine learning to generate accurate, descriptive text from speech in real time or near-real time.
A.I. and cloud-based analytics are becoming the standard in text accessibility everywhere. More and more companies are utilizing machine learning to generate closed captioning to increase engagement, from deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to some who simply prefer to watch without sound in particular settings. Speech-to-text software has come a long way, but there are still some hurdles such as juxtaposed languages or garbled speech which it cannot yet decode - which is where A.I. and machine learning are focused on building their knowledge bases.
Scope of Analysis
The examination of this sector is limited to smart text generation using cloud-based analytics. Patents specifically related to eliminating latency or errors in accuracy with streaming were mainly of interest.
